We recently had the pleasure of inviting Assistant Professor Igor
Štimac, Ph.D., IAP, AvMP to hold a presentation about the "Development of the
Zagreb Airport… past - present - future” for RIT Croatia students in Zagreb.
With over 15 years of experience in the field of airport operations and airport
middle and top management, Mr.Štimac explained to our students about the
development stage of the infrastructure and the specifics of the management
systems at the Franjo Tuđman Airport. His work mainly focuses on technical and
technological systems in air transport, airport strategic development, airport
infrastructure, and capacity planning, airline business models, and the
environmental impact of air transport. Yet, apart from working ag the airport,
he is also a lecturer at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences in
Zagreb, Department of Air Transport and an aviation instructor at the
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in the USA.
Our students had the great opportunity to see what it takes to master the fields of operations and management first-hand from Mr.Štimac himself. Through the second part of his presentation, he explained the transition that was made from the old to the new terminal that was constructed in Zagreb. Yet, the third part of his presentation consisted of an explanation of the current airport management and the implementation monitoring of the Concession Contraction. He continued by explaining the aspect of the quality level of service and the strategy of aeronautical and non-aeronautical profit-making. Finally, he closed his guest lecture by talking about the Airport City and Cargo City projects as well as the infrastructure development of the Franjo Tuđman Airport.
With the start of the new academic year higher education institutions are facing unique challenges that stand to swiftly, thoroughly, and permanently reshape them. When academic year starts with key messages focused around safety of students and faculty, it is clear even to a common observer that students and faculty alike are embarking on a journey like none before.
Quality and excellence have always been embedded in RIT Croatia's DNA. As a global campus of RIT, we are committed to deliver exceptional studying and learning experiences for our students, we well as working experience for our employees.
